Mute Tourette's Syndrome
I'm going to be taking part in a charity bike ride on 18 November 2010 to raise funds for Mute Tourette's Syndrome. A friend of mine has a 5 yr old son that suffers from this and we are raising funds to pay for a year's therapy.
Mute Tourette's syndrome has long been in the shadow of its more 'famous' sister-disease, 'Tourette's Syndrome', and although much rarer, is even more tragic in its consequences.
While a child suffering from Tourette's has difficulty in containing its anger and frustration, a child with Mute Tourette's suffers a worse fate, and is unable to express their true feelings.
The Mute Tourette's Foundation is using radical new art therapy techniques to help combat the frustration and loneliness of Mute Tourette's. However, their work can only continue with your help.
Just $0.25 will keep a child supplied with crayons and paper for a whole day. $1.50 will provide them with enough art supplies for a week. I would therefore be extremely grateful if you were able to help with such a deserving cause.
Please find attached a picture which clearly demonstrates just how the donations received so far have been put to such good use.
